“A quintet of ‘podheads’ in Oklahoma has struck cyber-gold on the Internet with a rock-and-roll song that celebrates podcasts and denigrates terrestrial radio. “On a Podcast” is a light-hearted and profane anthem praising the freedom that artists have to create and distribute their own music over the Net and through file downloads,” Frank Barnako reports for MarketWatch. “‘I just got introduced to podcasts a month ago,’ said Greg St. Clare, writer of the song and producer of the band known as Cruisebox. ‘When I discovered it, my head freaking exploded because now the gatekeepers, the big radio conglomerates, are out of the way, and artists can take their creative products directly to the listeners.'”
“St. Clare’s been playing music for about 25 years. Based in Oklahoma City, he and partner Chris Hicks, the band’s lead guitarist, operate a recording studio business. St. Clare’s background includes work with advertising agencies where he’s written radio jingles, giving ‘On a Podcast’ a familiar Top-40 commercial sound,” Barnako reports. Full article here.
